WWI Source: Fight in the rain soaked trenches or charge over No Man’s Land to battle in the War to End All Wars. Use authentic weaponry to conquer the enemy, call in artillery strikes to take out enemies en masse, or use chemical warfare to disable your opponents! WWI Source is the first and only World War I game to be developed for Steam. All the current WWI mod teams (‘The Trenches 2’, ‘Fields of Horror’, ‘WWI Source’) have united to develop the best World War I game to the Steam community, using the latest Source engine. Please visit the official website for more information on WWI Source and the team.

Hi there, WWI: Source Dev team reporting in;

There's nothing new and fancy (well, other than a pair of screenshots) being posted in this news-update, we simply need to tell you that we're still in need of coders to finish this thing. Without a coder it's all going to be a stand-still for us. Actually I'm not exaggerating if I say the mod will most likely have to be put down if we can't find a willing individual. While most of the art is done, this means nothing when we don't have that individual who can put it all together ingame. If you are experienced with C++ and have knowledge of the source-engine or know someone who might be, contact me (ashton93) as soon as possible here on MoDDb. Here are some requirements we listed for the job back in November, unfortunately we didnt get any applicants back then. Hopefully that will change this time.

  • Major experience with C++ and how the source-engine works together with it. (previous work on mods for Source is a huge plus)
  • That you have enough time for this project.
  • Being able to communicate with the rest of the team and actively shaping the game from discussions and solutions we come up with.
  • Working with progress-docs and updating them as you make changes.
  • Being creative!

Perhaps this will encourage all of you mildly or very interested coders out there looking for some work, if so do as I told you and contact me (ashton93) here on this site. I will give you details on your work after that has been done
We're still really close, but this is impossible without  that one guy who can do some magic on our codebase.

We're not really the type of guys who leaves you all empty-handed. Here's a recent screenshot of a German Bomber getting ready to toss a Stielhandgranate in Longueval, Delville Wood.

Over and out,
Ashton and the WWI: Source Developer team

I'm glad you guys decided to hold off on the release. As eager as I am for a good WWI mod, I'd much rather have a nicely-polished beta rather than an alpha. Here's to a smooth, continued development!

I would think a big reason would be that the mod desperately needed some new content, and the TT players were told they'd be getting updates in the future, but things got tied up with the dev team for various reasons and the mod stayed in its beta form for years until they announced it wasn't going to happen...

In all that time, people just either got bored of it, or stopped playing, figuring "hey, eventually there will be a better version out!" It's happened with other mods, and even full games. Not to mention that HL1 is an aging engine, and without an update and fresh coat of paint, a lot of people are turned off by it; add that to the fact that The Trenches 2 was announced and that a lot of people generally aren't as interested in WWI as other scenarios. It's happened with other mods, and even full games. But eh, just my two cents. I still think it's a very fun mod to play. :I

I don't mean to bring you down, but I found this mod pretty dreadful in its current state. Your attempt at realism by forcing the player to "pull the bolt" every time you shoot is annoying but I guess some people will like it. The Officers' ability to drop toxic gas and artilery is terrible. It's very frustrating to get killed randomly, and it adds nothing of value to the gameplay. The biggest problem I had when playing was really the red effect when you get hit. It paints nearly your entire screen…
